Fruit Salad!

Fruit Salad!

Good Morning!

Mary-Ann Maldonado here with you today.  How fun has this Fruit Basket Shaker Kit been all month? I have to tell you that it has been really fun for me.  I couldn't help but create a layout with this crazy Godson of mine and his cooky antics.  

I started my layout with a FREE cut file Wreath from Paper Issues.  
This started my base for layering my fruit.

Here is a close up of the wreath.  I did bring in some random die cuts and punches to use to help embellish the wreath a bit more than the cut file.  The cut file was the perfect starting point to get a round circle.  I also hung the appropriate fruit from the vines that coordinated with the blossom Pom Poms.

I found it a little easier to create the wreath effect with loose fruit.  So I assembled them individually and then layered them and moved them around until I like the positions.

Adding vines and leaves within the fruit helped with the empty spaces and tied the wreath in to the bottom as well.

There is nothing like a good fruit salad, and that is what I provided you with today.  Don't forget, Queen & Company also sells extra shaker refills in the store.
